Manchester United star Paul Pogba apologised to his team-mates in the dressing room after missing a huge chance in the closing stages of their 0-0 draw with Liverpool on Sunday, Metro.co.uk claim.
The France international was one of United’s better performers during a poor performance against the Reds, which still maintained their position at the top of the table.
Liverpool dominated possession at Anfield but the best opportunities fell to United, with Bruno Fernandes wasting a fine chance in the second half.
But the best chance fell to Pogba in the closing stages as he controlled a cross from Aaron Wan-Bissaka and had the chance to score the winning goal from around ten yards out.
But, though Pogba connected well with his strike, his effort was straight at Alisson Becker and they failed to create another chance as the two clubs played out for a draw.
Pogba fell to the turf after seeing his effort saved and it was clear that he was instantly aware of the significance of his huge miss.
When Pogba reached the changing room facilities, Metro.co.uk claims that he apologised to the entire team after admitting that he should have buried the chance.

Players like Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay were quick to console Pogba, while Solskjaer told him to ‘forget’ about the missed chance as United have only three days to prepare for their next game against Fulham.
Certain members of the squad were reported to be furious with the failure to win the game but Solskjaer told his team they had done their jobs and that a point could prove invaluable as the season progresses.
Solskjaer is expected to make changes for the game against Fulham on Wednesday, with Edinson Cavani, Nemanja Matic and Mason Greenwood all likely to start.
